2023 AHUA Art Exhibition: Aurora

Art History Undergraduate Association at UCI, in collaboration with the Students for Health Humanities, presents our health humanities exhibition, Aurora.


The polar lights illuminate the night sky, connecting observers from oceans and continents apart. In the same vein, our art show will illustrate shared experiences from around the state to foster compassion in healthcare. From your brightest hopes to darkest struggles, we warmly invite you to shed light on your stories, reflections, or perceptions related to health/well-being.

People are not defined by their culture, profession, or diagnosis. We encourage everyone to see the light in people and always be a light for each other.
